Is it true that some people don't like discussing bad economic news because it's bad luck or something. It just seems that the more bad economic news that comes out, the less many want to discuss it. I don't think it's a case of doomsayers vs. naysayers as it's just the reality we are living in. Why do people enjoy discussing good economic times so much but when a down-turn happens, they act like the 3 wise monkeys? No matter what we discuss, it doesn't change anything. No matter what news comes out, it can't effect the economic trend...yes, there are people who think bad news fosters more bad economic times. I think that is ridiculous myself as the news must be reported in good times and in bad equally.
